A man who was installing carpet decides to take a smoke break after completing the first of several rooms he has to do. Finding his cigarettes missing from his pocket, he begins searching, only to notice a small lump in his recently completed carpet installation.
Not wanting to rip up all that work for a lousy pack of smokes, he walks over to the lump and pounds it flat. The man decides to forgo the break and continues on to the next room requiring carpet.
At the end of the day, the man has completed his work and is out on the driveway loading his tools into the back of his truck when the young lad who lives in the house returns home to admire his new carpet.
The lad heads back inside the house, gets to the door and then calls out, “Before you go, have you seen my mouse? He seems to have escaped from his cage again.”
